Music heals us, it takes us to a different world and 3d printing makes us feel like a scientist, creator, innovator. What will be your reaction, when you have a chance to 3d print your own music instrument and play it? I guess there is no better feeling. Yes! With 3d printer around you can even create your own 3d printed instruments. A man from Siberia named Ignatovich has created 3d printed electric violin, which just works like other violins. He is a scientist who wish to do everything on his own, last year too, he created his very own 3d printer kit.
Ignatovish interest towards music, 3d printers, and micro controllers, rolled over his mind to create a beautiful 3d printed electric violin. Inspired from F-F-fiddle project, he decided to create on his own since he couldn’t do the F-F-fiddle project with plastic available. With his extensive knowledge in 3d modeling he designed his own violin using CAD software and converted them into .stl files to print the violin. Watch the assembly video of this violin.
Naming it as EIViolin, he 3d printed this violin on his own build 3d printer, the build size of the print is like other prusa I3 200X200X 180 (mm), so he separated the parts and assembled them together, he bought the microcontroller and other stuffs on eBay. Ignatovish printed all the parts using the PLA plastic which is strong enough to use and play. The result was quite amazing, watch the video were Ignatvosich shown the world how well the EIViolin works.
It just took him 1 month to create the ElViolin and soon it will available in Thingiverse, so if you are interested to create one, just download, 3d print and play it.
